Hey Guys!!!
It's Frankie here from London again, and here I am with another video for warm ups and daily routine exercises:
I call it the 8 8 16 Exercise. Confused? Have no idea of what this means? Check the video to solve THE CODE! (I'm such a loser...) ;)

Anyway, I'm already planning a few changes for the next videos I'm gonna publish, like shortened the intro and take out the snow sound during transitions; but if you guys have more feedback to give me I would appreciate it

Stay cool guys!!!

General Board / Nashville Drummers Jam 3 - Jeff Porcaro Tribute
« Last post by Bart Elliott on March 27, 2015, 07:50 AM »
With the recent passing of iconic bassist, Mike Porcaro, and the upcoming birthday of Jeff Porcaro (April 1), I wanted to share my video footage of the Nashville Drummers Jam 3 - Jeff Porcaro Tribute, a Premium Resource, on Drummer Cafe TV.


Watch and listen to some of Nashville's top drummers perform songs that legendary session drummer, Jeff Porcaro, made famous ... including music from Eric Clapton, Jude Cole, Steely Dan, Greg Mathieson Project, Michael McDonald, Boz Scaggs and Toto.

Hey guys,
I'm Frankie, I've been playing drums for 13 years now and I'm living in London for almost two years. I had the pleasure last year to collaborate with a studio called "Studio 147" where we recorded a few drum cover videos.
Let me know what you guys think and hope you like it :)

Technique(s) / My first videos for warm up: The Ex. Pad Session

Hey guys! How are you doing?
I wanted to check with you what do you think of these videos I'm doing. The idea is to have a digital list of exercises to pick from so that you can create your own daily routine. And it would be visual too because these are going to be short videos explaining the exercise. Plus you can download the transcript. I uploaded four for now. Just to see how it goes, you know... but my goal is to have like a bunch of them.
Here's one. I called it Triplets Accents Change. I saw it in many books and many teachers gave it to me too, as an exercise.
The concept is to play each triplet with one hand, changing hands each bar. Plus you'll be accenting each 1/8 note of the triplet every 4 bars. Maybe it's easier to see it that to write it down

Check it out and tell me guys what you think of it

Okay, how badass is this? Watch the whole thing, there are a number of things I've never seen anyone do before. Such an impressive showman!

General Board / Re: notation for brushes
« Last post by Bart Elliott on March 20, 2015, 10:11 AM »
I, like you, have notated the sweeps with ties in the past.

What I do now is use the legato mark over the note. This allows the rhythmic notation to remain intact and accurate, while allowing the performer to know (assuming they have already been told to use brushes) that the legato mark (horizontal line above the note) is for sweeps or stirring.

What I like about this approach is that there is no need for a legend or nomenclature key. Legato means giving the note it's full, long value; smooth and connected. You could use any symbol you want to achieve the end result, but again, you'd need to have a key to clue the perform what it all means.
